How to Wear White Jeans

Wearing White Jeans

If we’ve hung out here before, you’ve probably noticed that my sense of style is individual.  I like to wear colour and I celebrate the unusual and quirky.  I’m not afraid of fashion.  Yet there is one thing I just didn’t wear.  White jeans.  I was scared of them.

I had to get over my fear – and get over myself at the same time.  So I took the plunge and bought myself a pair of Bohemian Traders White Distressed Skinnies*.

Once they arrived (beautifully packaged, I must note) in the post, I have to confess I popped them straight into my clean laundry basket to take upstairs, where they were placed on my denim shelf in my walk in wardrobe.  And there they sat.

Finally, I decided that I needed to just, you know, put my white jeans on over the top of my big girl panties and rock those white jeans like a fashion rockstar!  I needed to figure out how to wear white jeans.

The Fox in Flats Style Dare prompt of Nautical Chic gave me the perfect excuse to rock my white jeans.  Want my tips on how to wear white jeans? Stay tuned!

OK, stay tuned.  Here comes the big breakthrough you’ve been waiting for.

Want to know the trick? How to wear white jeans?  Well, it turns it you put them on.  I’m serious. You put them on, you add some more clothes so you don’t get arrested for indecent exposure and you leave the house.  Yes really.  It’s as simple as that.  You’re not going to get arrested by the fashion police.

In fact, people may even stop you in the street to ask where you bought your amazing jeans.  True story.  It happened to me on both occasions I wore mine recently.

How to Wear White Jeans

  • Buy your white jeans in a style that you know suits you.  For me, this is a mid rise skinny and I just love my jeans cuffed.
  • When putting together your next jeans outfit, put on your white jeans instead.
  • Colour choices?  Wide open buttercup!  White is the ultimate neutral and goes with absolutely everything.
  • White jeans work beautifully with navy and stripes for a nautical look
  • For the perfect preppy look, team your white jeans with a pair of lace up derby shoes and a button up shirt layered under a cardigan
  • Dress up white jeans for a night out with a sparkly silk tank and classic pointed toe stilettos
  • White jeans are the ultimate for double denim looks.  Team a chambray shirt with white jeans.  Try a brightly coloured tee with a denim jacket and white jeans

Do you wear white jeans?  Am I just a wuss?

    • Kimba - 28 September 2014 - 6.59 pm

      I am just really, really messy Lisa! I put them on with a pink top and the Welshman said I looked like Miami Vice! There’s clearly a Miami connection, right?ReplyCancel

    I love white pants and white jeans. I just don’t wear them a lot with little kids. I really really REALLY want to buy some Bohemian Traders jeans but I know I will be losing weight soon and am reluctant to spend money on clothes that won’t fit me in a short while. I love your tips and as always I feel like I’m reading as if you’re talking to me. Love that about your blog. Hope you have a great afternoon. xReplyCancel

    • Kimba - 28 September 2014 - 7.02 pm

      That can be your goal then, Bec. Once you’ve lost that last little bit of baby weight (no rush there, you look lovely!), you can treat yourself to a pair of BT jeans!

      Oh and thanks for your lovely words. I just love having a chat so I’m so happy that comes across for you xxReplyCancel

    Love your down-to-earth sense of humor and writing style. “Well, it turns it you put them on.” Hah! Excellent advice, and thanks for keeping it real. 🙂ReplyCancel

    You are ROCKING those white jeans Lady!
    I’m still on the hunt for the perfect white jeans that suit me and my short stubby legs 🙂 They are an awesome Spring wardrobe addition.

      I always thought I was too thightastic for white jeans but then I figured, I don’t want to look back in 20 years time and think “man, look at my legs! they’re awesome!” and wish I’d worn them. I figured if I can wear a bikini in public then a pair of jeans should be easier, right?!

      Have you checked out brands with a petite range? Or perhaps a cropped ankle style, which might be just the right length for you? (PS (I’ve seen your legs, they’re not at all stumpy!) xReplyCancel

    I’m still on the hunt for my perfect pair of white jeans – you look FAb in yours.ReplyCancel

    I’m convinced more than ever that there isn’t a look or trend you can’t pull off. I have a full blown fear of white jeans. Not entirely sure why. Possibly to do with being bottom heavy.ReplyCancel

    • Kimba - 28 September 2014 - 7.07 pm

      Raychael, I’m a bit baby-got-back but I figured it was worth a go! I’m happy I backed myself #seewhatIdidthereReplyCancel
